1 SMART MORINGA Pure Organic Moringa Leaf Powder THE MORINGA TREE The moringa genus is the only member of the Moringaceae family, and it encompasses a wide range of plants, including flowering herbs and trees. The best known species within the genus is Moringa Oleifera. This tree is native to the area surrounding the himalayas in india, but can grow anywhere in tropical and semi-arid climates. it grows to about ten meters in height and produces leaves and pods even when water supplies are scarce, allowing it to thrive in arid climates where few other plants can survive. Best known for its exceptional usefulness as a food and medicinal plant, nearly every part of Moringa Oleifera can be used in one way or another to benefit humans and provide food and other valuable materials. Food Source The pods and leaves of Moringa trees are used for food in numerous cultures throughout the world. First cultivated in Northern India, it was incorporated into a number of religious and cultural observances, some of which continue to this day. Oil derived from the seeds of the Moringa was used as food and in unguents by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians and were part of the Ayurvedic health diet in India. The tree's hardy nature and multitude of uses has led to its cultivation in many areas including the West Indies, where it is a valuable source of food and oil products. The leaves, flowers and seed pods of the tree are highly nutritional and provide a number of necessary nutrients, including protein, beta carotene, calcium and Vitamin C. Because the Moringa tree can be grown in a wide range of climates and requires little water in order to produce leaves, pods and flowers, it is well suited to provide nutrition in areas of the world where food is scarce, including Asia and Africa. Every part of the tree can be consumed or used by either humans or animals, making it even more useful for combating malnutrition in these areas of the world. This is especially important for young children, pregnant women and lactating mothers who require additional nutritional support during these critical formative stages. The calcium and other nutrients available in the plant products offer solid food value at a minimal cost for these high-risk individuals. A number of organizations also recommend the plant as a food source for AIDS patients, who may require additional vitamin and mineral supplements to remain relatively healthy due to their weakened immune systems. Comparing Moringa Oleifera to other plants and food VITAMIN C 7 times more VITAMIN C than oranges VITAMIN A 4 times more VITAMIN A than carrots CALCIUM & PROTEIN 4 times more CALCIUM than milk TWICE as much PROTEIN than milk POTASSIUM 3 times more POTASSIUM than bananas VITAMIN E 3 times more VITAMIN E than spinach IRON 3 times more IRON than almonds

2 Vitamin Contents Along with a healthy portion of amino acids and protein, the leaves, seed pods and roots of the Moringa tree deliver a wide range of necessary vitamins that can ensure health and provide balanced nutrition. While these vitamins are especially important in underdeveloped areas where malnutrition is a major risk, they can also serve as a source for organic vitamins and proteins in more developed countries. The tree is an environmentally responsible way to produce a number of vitamin products including Vitamins A, B complex, C and E; beta carotene is especially abundant in Moringa trees. The plant's ability to grow in a wide range of climates and survive in low-moisture conditions makes it an ideal source of these vitamins in areas where other sources are difficult to cultivate and maintain. The vitamin content of the leaves is retained even after they have been dried, allowing the dried-leaf product to be transported and stored safely for months for later use. Moringa Leaves - Vitamins Vitamin A (Arginine Carotene) 6.78 mg 17.6 mg Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) 0.06 mg 2.02 mg Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 0.05 mg 21.3 mg Vitamin B3 (Niacin) 0.8 mg 7.6 mg Vitamin C 220 mg 15.8 mg Vitamin E 448 mg 10.8 mg Vitamin K 2.03 mg Mineral Contents Various parts of the Moringa tree are outstanding sources of minerals necessary to maintain good health. Along with vitamins and amino acids, the dried leaves can provide a large percentage of the daily requirements for calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. As a result, the leaves are often used to supplement the diets of expecting and nursing mothers and young children. Lack of iron can lead to anemia and other serious medical problems for these vulnerable individuals, while calcium deficiencies can cause muscular and skeletal problems for mothers and children alike. Moringa leaves can help to provide the needed calcium, iron and other minerals to avoid these nutritional problems, especially in areas where prenatal health care is difficult to obtain. The mineral content present in Moringa leaves, seed pods, and roots can be used to supplement the regular diet of undernourished populations. The tree allows everyone to enjoy better health, even in remote and undeveloped areas of the world. Moringa Leaves - Minerals Calcium 440 mg 2,185 mg Copper 0.07 mg 0.49 mg Iron 0.85 mg 25.6 mg Magnesium 42 mg 448 mg Phosphorus 70 mg 252 mg Potassium 259 mg 1,236 mg Zinc 0.16 mg 3.41 mg

3 Amino acids Contents Amino acids are considered the building blocks of proteins and are necessary elements of a healthful diet. Scientists have identified 22 standard amino acids capable of naturally forming polypeptide compounds. The Moringa oleifera tree contains all eight essential amino acids, which cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from dietary sources to provide a solid basis for physical health. The leaves and seeds of this useful plant are especially high in amino acids and provide a significant percentage of the recommended daily requirements for valine, lysine, methionine, cysteine, leucine, phenylalanine, threonine and isoleucine, the eight essential amino acids. These vital amino acids are necessary for proper brain, muscle and nervous function as well as providing the raw materials to allow the body to synthesize protein materials for further growth. Moringa seed pods and leaves provide all of the essential amino acids as well as 18 of the 22 standard amino acids and offer superior food value for undernourished populations in developing countries. Moringa Leaves - Amino Acids Arginine mg 1,027 mg Histidine mg 536 mg Isoleucine mg 932 mg Leucine mg 1,730 mg Lysine mg 1,036 mg Methionine mg 280 mg Phenylalinine mg 1,420 mg Threonine mg 1,080 mg Tryptophan 107 mg 510 mg Valine mg 875 mg Moringa Leaves - Other Nutritional Values Calories 92 cal 329 cal Carbohydrates 12.5 g 41.2 g Protein 6.70 g 29.4 g Fibers 0.90 g 19.2 g Fat 1.70 g 5.2 g Antioxidant Properties Recent studies indicate that the leaves and seeds of the Moringa tree possess strong antioxidant properties due to the presence of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants. A 2009 research study published by Sreelatha and Padma in the academic journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition indicated that the antioxidants present in both mature and green leaves offer superior protection against free radicals. The study also showed that the antioxidants in the leaves behave in a comparable manner as pharmaceutical grade antioxidant preparations. The pods and seeds are also useful in protecting cells from oxidation damage. The Journal of Herbal Medicine published a study by Kumar, Kumar, Singh and Vasisht in 2007 that demonstrated the antioxidant properties of these seed pods against the action of free radicals that can cause cancer and other damage to cell structures within the body.

4 Digestive system The leaves of the plant contain an ethanol derivative that can offer relief to individuals suffering from gastrointestinal disorders and can protect against ulcers when ingested. Additionally, complex chemical compounds present in the leaves can reduce the severity of diarrhea and help prevent the consequent dehydration that can otherwise result. This is especially important in younger children who may suffer serious negative effects from prolonged dehydration due to persistent diarrhea, particularly in areas without access to modern medicine. Liver function Found in the leaves and flowers of the plant, the chemical compound quercetin has been shown to provide significant benefits for tuberculosis patients. A number of medical studies have shown that liquid extracts from the leaves of the plant can help to regulate the function of the thyroid when taken regularly; this can prevent or reduce the effects of hyperthyroidism in some patients. Cardiovascular benefits Moringa leaf extracts contain powerful diuretic medicine that can reduce high blood pressure; these diuretic effects are thought to be produced by thiocarbamate glycosides naturally produced and found throughout the plant. In laboratory testing, the fruit of the plant was shown to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood and to help the body flush these harmful substances more quickly and easily. Blood sugar levels A study published in Phytotherapy Research in 1997 showed that the aqueous extract of moringa leaves could significantly reduce the blood sugar levels experienced by rabbits in the laboratory environment. These results may have major implications for treatment of certain forms of diabetes and may offer hope to those experiencing severe diabetic symptoms on a daily basis. Other uses Some studies suggest that medicine developed from the leaves and roots of the plant may provide some protection against the herpes simplex virus. The antibiotic, antifungal and antimicrobial properties of the plant are already well known to modern medicine and produce results comparable to pharmaceutical grade antibiotics. Conclusions The moringa plant offers a wide range of proven health and medical benefits now recognized by practitioners of modern medicine. Potential pharmaceutical uses include: Cardiovascular health Control of high blood pressure Relief from gastrointestinal distress, ulcers and persistent diarrhea Lower blood sugar levels Antibiotic properties Antimicrobial action Antifungal properties Improved liver function Enhanced overall health and nutrition By incorporating moringa supplements into daily dietary choices, individuals can protect their health and improve their overall physical condition naturally and effectively.

5 The role of moringa powder in treating HIV and AIDS Moringa oleifera is a versatile, highly nutritious plant that grows in a wide range of climates and can survive for extended periods in dry, near- drought conditions. A number of studies have recently been completed or are currently underway to investigate the utility of moringa powder in treating HIV-positive patients in areas where there is a critical shortage of medical supplies and antiretroviral drugs are prohibitively expensive or unavailable. Moringa leaves contain powerful antioxidants that can help prevent or delay some of the worst complications arising from AIDS, so it is a natural choice for areas where modern medical facilities are scarce and overcrowded. The proceedings of the 14th International AIDS Conference held in Barcelona, Spain in 2002 included a recommendation that moringa powder be considered as an alternative treatment to boost the immune systems of HIVpositive patients in Africa who would otherwise not receive antiretroviral drugs or, in fact, any treatments at all. Because moringa also provides superior nutritional value for patients it can also prove useful in preventing immune system breakdown due to malnutrition, thus offering even more help for poorer areas in Africa and around the globe. While moringa's antioxidant and nutritional benefits cannot directly compete with the superior results of modern antiretrovirals, it shows promise in providing reduced mortality rates and improved health for HIV-positive and AIDS patients in these less developed areas. a product of Smartseptic (PTY) LTD.
